In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 4 MX 440 are massively better than the AMD Radeon X1270.

The Radeon X1270 was released over three years more recently than the 4 MX, and so the Radeon X1270 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the 4 MX when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The Radeon X1270 and the GeForce 4 MX 440 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The 4 MX has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon X1270, which means that the memory performance of the 4 MX is marginally better than the Radeon X1270.

The 4 MX has 2 Shader Processing Units but the Radeon X1270 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon X1270 requires 14 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 4 MX 440.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThis GPU was intended to be an overclocked and tweaked Radeon Xpress 1200 but it was never released and it does not exist.GeForce4 MX 440 is part of the GeForce4 GPUS released by NVIDIA in 2002. Only compatible with DirectX 7 or less and with a max memory of 128 MB, it can't play today's games. Still, games before 2003 should be fully playable at max settings....
